I think I’m over the billionaire fantasy. It wasn’t a bad book, but I simply couldn’t connect with the characters. The author made all the right moves and there was a sense of history for the characters, but it was told rather than shown. I didn’t really buy that they had any deeper feelings for each other if even for themselves. Also, I was disappointed to find out that his problems trumped hers. In the end the chemistry felt more like a mother comforting her adult child and congratulating him on growing up than a woman deeply in love and happy to see the man of her life finally ready to commit to her.
Also,[highlight to view: I get what the author was trying to do with the necklace, but I found it tacky. It’d been better for him to finish the first necklace however he wanted to finish it and make something new for Madeline].
